it was often said by patrons "Hey man I got stoned here in the 60s and Now I'm clean and sober thanks to this place" The crowds of recovering people outside 19-23-25 st. Marks place on any given day or Night were enormous, people sipping on Coffee just fellowshiping out on the side walk In between AA or NA meetings, the nieghborhood Often complained that the side walk was Impossible to walk through but I believe their Complaints were based on stereo typical Views and opinions of Junkies and alcoholics After all we were a loud bunch rejoicing In our new found recovery and sobriety. The HOW club which was open every Friday and Saturday and every thanksgiving, Christmas And New Years it held marathon meetings Around the clock on these holiday's. So for the general printed media this history As the space once known as the Electric Circus Which linked everybody from Lou Reed and The Velvet underground, the Altman bros., The greatful dead and numerous others that went On to great commercial success. The common Knowledge by the media stops short of Including a post Electric Circus history Of almost 30 Years.
